We’ve chosen to share our stories with you, to shine some light on what real people living with mental illness look like. We’re no different than you. We hope that through sharing our stories, we inspire you to view mental illness through a more compassionate lens. We hope to let others struggling know that they are NOT alone. And we hope to make it easier for those people to get the help they need and deserve.
“Faces of Mental Illness” will be launching in September and feature a collection of stories from individuals who shared their deepest, darkest experiences and covers incredibly important topics such as: attempting suicide, self-harm, substance abuse, living with Bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, reframing your biggest disadvantage and how you can see your weaknesses as a superpower
Our hope with this empowering book is to help anyone who is struggling with mental illness to know there is nothing to be ashamed of, you are not alone and there is hope.
We want to help you realize that what you think is your stigma is really your gift. We want to help you see that you can accomplish goals and dreams again. You can live a happy thriving life again. You can even love your life again.
This book is powerful, it’s uplifting but it’s also real and honest. We don’t sugarcoat the experiences of mental illness because we believe honest and open conversations around mental illness is what the world needs more of. So we are writing a second book! And we want you to be a part of this important movement.
You don’t need to have any writing experience, you just need to have a story to share.
